This is a webpage of an english-speaking Alcoholics Anonymous fellowship in Berlin. Here you'll find the most updated list of other AA meetings in Berlin and relevant news.
Here you'll find plenty of information about the fellowship and alcoholism. It is also a great resource to find other meetings in Europe and download loads of AA related literature.
HOW CAN I JOIN AA?
This is a home-page of our fellowship in U.S.. There's no better place online if you wish to learn more about AA and alcoholism. This webpage is full of relavant information and downloads.
Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about their drinking problem. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership, and we don’t keep any records of who comes or who leaves. You are welcome to come along to a meeting and see what is being said, and we won’t bother you if you decide that you don’t want what we have to offer; so you have nothing to lose and possibly everything to gain
If you want to listen to other people sharing their story of addiction and recovery, this webpage offers hundrets of free downoaldable MP3 recordings. It is NOT an official AA webpage.
WHERE ARE THE MEETINGS AND HOW DO I GET THERE?
In Berlin there are almost 30 english speaking AA meetings a week. Please check the english-speaking AA Berlin homepage for dates and directions. If you'd like an AA LGBTQI member to go with you to your first AA meeting, we will be happy to do so. Just give us a call or write us a message.
WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW
IF I'M AN ALCOHOLIC?
We who are in A.A. came because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking. We still hated to admit that we could never drink safely. Then we heard from other A.A. members that we were sick. (We thought so for years!) We found out that many people suffered from the same feelings of guilt and loneliness and hopelessness that we did. We found out that we had these feelings because we had the disease of alcoholism.
We decided to try and face up to what alcohol had done to us. Only you can decide whether you think A.A. is for you. Try to keep an open mind on the subject. If the answer is YES, we will be glad to show you how we stopped drinking ourselves. A.A. does not promise to solve your life's problems. But we can show you how we are learning to live without drinking "one day at a time." We stay away from that "first drink." If there is no first one, there cannot be a tenth one. And when we got rid of alcohol, we found that life became much more manageable.
